Are You Too Confident About Your Ability to Perform Work Safely?
It’s always good to feel confident in your ability to perform your job effectively. However, please remember that there is such a thing as overconfidence. No matter how long you’ve been working in your role without injury, it’s important to be mindful of possible hazards associated with your tasks so you can protect yourself. Be sure to remember the safety basics and adhere to safe work practices and procedures which have been developed to protect you. Please don’t become complacent and develop a false sense of security while at work. This can lead to improper assessment of hazards, and you could unintentionally put yourself at risk. Remain alert and focused on completing your work safely. Don’t take shortcuts and wear your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – every time.
